    Thanks for the heads-up Redress. That's the first I've heard about it.

    I wonder how they got the rattlesnake to sign an organ donor card?

    But of course best wishes for a speedy recovery.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    this may well be the first time a donated organ rejected its recipient

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Vice President Cheney. I disagree with him on almost every issue, but I must say, his sense of humor works for me. Being opposed on politics does not mean we should demonize nor hate those we disagree with.
    No 70+ year old should have any sort of transplant... it is a waste of money and resources.. no wonder the US healthcare industry is so screwed up.. money and influence trumps over logic.

    His mortal sins have been partially forgiven with a heart transplant.

    And this attitude is exactly what scares me about socialized health care.

    this heart, may give Dick another 5 years.

    I wonder how many years it may have given a much younger & healthier person.

    Well sure. Once someone turns, say, 68, let's just withhold all medical care. Think of the savings. And it's conservatives who are supposedly heartless?
